“Regera” translates to “to reign” in Swedish. Wherever it ventures, the Koenigsegg Regera reigns with a combination of a V8 engine and three electric motors. Exceptional performance is just one of its many highlights; the Koenigsegg Regera is unabashedly luxurious and cossets drivers with a level of style and comfort that can only be achieved by a Koenigsegg megacar.
Traditionally, Koenigsegg models offer a level of unexpected functionality. The goal of Koenigsegg is to create the fastest, most high-performing vehicles in the world, but that doesn’t mean comfort, luxury, and practicality don’t play their parts. The Regera embodies this philosophy with incredible speed and handling, as well as a cabin that delivers superb comfort in any driving situation.
REGERA IS SWEDISH FOR ‘TO REIGN’
– a suitable name for a machine that offers an unforeseen combination of power, responsiveness and luxury. The Regera will reign as king of the open road – the fastest accelerating, most powerful production car ever.
In spite of all its advanced technology and creature comforts, the Regera is comparatively light and can still perform competitively around a race circuit. How does 3.2 seconds between 150 to 250 km/h and under 20 seconds from 0 to 400 km/h sound? The only Hypercar/Megacar that we think could possibly be faster around a circuit is another Koenigsegg.
The Regera is to be handcrafted in an edition of just 80 vehicles at Koenigsegg’s production facility in Ängelholm, Sweden. This is the first time ever that Koenigsegg will have two different models in parallel production.
Beneath the hood of the Koenigsegg Regera rests the most downsized homologated Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) currently in production. Although similar to the engine that powered the Agera, it stands on its own. The engine itself is compact, but make no mistake, it’s a fast-spooling beast. Equipped with three electric motors and a seemingly endless supply of battery power, the Regera generates up to 1,500 hp with the benefit of electric propulsion and a Direct Drive system that delivers instant torque.
One of the secrets to the Regera’s capability is a new powertrain technology called Koenigsegg Direct Drive (KDD). This system eliminates the conventional gearbox, reducing weight and improving efficiency. This technology, coupled with the Regera’s powerful engine and electric motors, makes it a weapon on the racetrack and a joy to drive on Southwest Ranches roads. The newly designed subframe situates the engine and transmission on active soft mounts, so vibration and noise are reduced for a smoother and quieter ride.
KOENIGSEGG DIRECT DRIVE
Traditional hybrids represent a compromise when it comes to weight, complexity, cost, packaging and efficiency.
The Regera is not what we at Koenigsegg would call a traditional hybrid as it does not have the traditional shortcomings of a hybrid. Instead, the Regera is a new breed of hybrid. It is a new breed of Koenigsegg and a new breed of car, for that matter.
Traditional ‘parallel’ hybrids are compromised and heavy as they have two independent propulsion systems moving the car. While ‘series’ hybrids are less compromised when it comes to weight, complexity and costs, they are compromised when it comes to efficiency as there is too much energy conversion taking place.
The Koenigsegg Direct Drive transmission (KDD) was invented by Christian von Koenigsegg and developed for the Regera by the Koenigsegg Advanced Engineering team.
The patent-pending KDD replaces the combustion engine’s traditional transmission – the gearbox as you know it is removed from the car. In its place, the KDD provides direct drive to the rear axle from the combustion engine without the need of multitude gears or a variable transmissions, all of which have inherently high energy losses.
During highway travel, for example, the KDD reduces drivetrain losses compared to a traditional transmission or CVT by over 50% as there is no step up or step down gear working in series with the final drive – just direct power sent from the engine to the wheels.
The Regera has three YASA developed electric motors, which supplement the energy from the combustion engine. Aside from providing extreme responsiveness, these electric motors also allow for torque vectoring, regenerative braking and energy conversion. YASA´s axial flux motors are extremely power dense, making them a key-ingredient for the KDD. There is one YASA motor for each rear wheel, providing electric direct drive, and one on the crankshaft that provides torque-fill, electrical generation and starter motor functionality.
The three electric motors constitute the most powerful electrical motor set-up in production car history, replacing the gears of a normal transmission. This provides all-important weight savings as well as adding power, torque and torque vectoring capability.
Koenigsegg has developed a clutch-slip mechanism that uses the hydraulic coupling to convert torque at medium/high speeds during fast acceleration. This allows the combustion engine to gain revs and power, thereby giving the sensation of a traditional downshift with the associated aural enjoyment, even without the traditional gearbox.
Shift paddles remain on either side of the steering wheel. The left paddle is used to enhance regenerative braking effect in recharging the battery pack. The right paddle is used to activate the hydraulic coupling’s ‘downshift’ operation.
Koenigsegg has worked extremely hard to find the best performing, and safest battery possible for the Regera. This research and testing has resulted in an 800 volt, 4.5kWh battery pack, making the Regera the world’s first 800V production car.
This extreme battery technology will now provide an amazing 525kW of discharge and up to 200kW of recharge. The only batteries in any form of automotive use that provide comparative performance for their size are those found in Formula 1 race cars.
The Koenigsegg Regera battery pack also boasts the highest cooling capacity of any battery in automotive use today. All electric vehicle manufacturers use coolant piped around the battery pack to draw heat from the batteries. There is always an area that traditional cooling pipes cannot reach, however. The Regera battery pack is housed in a sealed unit featuring optimized local coolant flooding across all critical heat-sensitive elements. Every critical surface within and around the battery stack is cooled as efficiently as possible.
Finally, there is the battery pack’s weight. Through research and investment in premium battery technology, the production version of the Regera will ship with a battery pack that not only performs better, but weighs just 75kgs, a saving of 40kgs over the concept battery.
Every cell of the pack is carefully monitored for voltage, state of charge, health and temperature. The cells are enclosed in a carbon fibre casing for efficiency, safety and stability. The battery is located in the most protected area of the car – the carbon-aramid chassis tunnel.
To put the revolutionary nature of the Regera into proper perspective, it has almost triple as many electric horsepower (700hp) than its closest hybrid rival, with over 300hp more in total horsepower. And yet the Regera remains at a very competitive weight, while still including features such as a six way adjustable electrical seat and a fully robotized body work.
From the outside, the Koenigsegg Regera is a sight to behold. Front and Rear Active wings give it a boost in aerodynamics, as well as a distinctive style. The Regera also boasts the world’s first fully foldable top-mounted, active rear wing. The Daytime Running Lights (DRL) command attention on Fort Lauderdale roads with a unique constellation effect, which is achieved by strategically placed LEDs near the lamp cluster. The effect is a Koenigsegg innovation and resembles a star-bright night.
The interior of the Regera is well-insulated for a quiet ride and includes ambient lighting, so you can set the tone for any drive. Meanwhile, 8-way electronically adjustable seats with memory foam guarantee superior comfort, whether you’re cruising the highways or doing laps around the track. To keep you connected, the Regera also features a 9-inch screen for the infotainment system, as well as a camera system inside and outside, Apple CarPlay, and Wi-Fi connectivity. Remote diagnostics and firmware update capability ensure your car’s systems are functioning properly and up to date.
Daytime Running Lights (DRL) are often the first glimpse one gets of a car approaching from a distance. We wanted the Regera to be easily recognized from afar, a desire that led to our new Constellation DRL system.
The constellation effect was achieved by scattering LEDs around the lamp cluster – like stars set against a night sky of polished carbon fiber.
The LED´s make the whole lamp cluster glitter and shine as if encrusted with diamonds. There’s cool, and then there’s Koenigsegg cool.
The Koenigsegg Regera features Autoskin, which allows the driver to control certain aspects of the car via remote control. The front luggage door, rear engine cover door, and driver and passenger doors can all be opened with the touch of a button.
Autoskin is an overall lightweight system that uses hydraulics and proximity sensors to give you easy and practical control of the Regera. There’s also a “Show Mode” button on the remote control, which opens the doors and elevates the rear spoiler, so the Regera can be seen at its best.
THE WORLD’S FIRST FOLDABLE, ACTIVE, TOP-MOUNTED REAR WING
The Koenigsegg One:1 featured the world’s first top-mounted active rear wing. This was an innovative solution that maximized down force compared to its size and weight.
The Regera has taken this solution to the next level, allowing the wing to fully retract into the body work enhancing the cars elegance while parking and reducing drag while cruising. The wing’s active, foldable mechanism is a lightweight work of carbon fiber art and the movement is truly mesmerizing.
Why do we use a top-mounted rear wing? It is common to see a rear wing supported by pillars running between the body of the car and the underside of the rear wing. This is a good base level solution that provides appropriate downforce when designed in the right way.
Aerodynamic testing shows us, however, that it is the underside of the wing that provides the most downforce, so disturbances to this surface should be minimized where possible. A top-mounted rear wing such as that fitted as standard equipment on the One:1 and Regera provides an undisturbed underside surface for maximum downforce.
One of the Regera’s crowning features is its customized titanium exhaust system, which was developed with Akrapovic. What makes this exhaust system unique from the ones found on other high-performance cars? Everything. It features a fishtail outlet, which was designed by Christian. This fishtail design was thought to be a thing of the past, and hasn’t been utilized on production cars for over 50 years. The Regera’s one-of-a-kind exhaust system creates a very special sound — the likes of which haven’t been heard for nearly half a century.
